This is actually regarding the new Didsbury branch. I ordered a pizza on gluten free dough which they didn't have - I ordered a nicoise salad which was very dry and had no dressing. The service was fine but considering the restaurant has only just opened the food needs improvement.

Croma have a bizarre booking policy: you can only book a table of four people or more. Why? If you have friends or colleagues and want to take them out then you can't take the risk at busy times that they will have no space and therefore you'll all go hungry. WAKE UP CROMA! There are other restaurants who will... More

I’ve been to Croma lots with my girlfriend and we really do enjoy this place. It’s never disappointing and the food is always reliably excellent. Croma is superbly situated in the middle of Chorlton so is handy for all of the bars beforehand or after your meal. The pizzas and salads in Croma are absolutely lovely, freshly cooked and the...

I have been to this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. It is not fine dining and doesn't pretend to be however the food, atmosphere and value for money mean it is always near the top of my list of favourite places to eat out. The only downside is the "no reservations" policy for small groups but there is... More

The early bird menu is very reasonably priced, had this the first time and then ate of the normal... More

Croma never fails to get me excited! No matter which branch, although Chorlton is our favourite, you'll receive a lovely warm welcome. The pizzas and salads are delicious, ambience and team excellent!

We have been going to Croma for a number of years. The food and service has always been of an excellent standard. The staff always give a very high level of service and are very responsive to your requirements. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.

It's my third visit and again, it was a really good experience. The food is great, there's an extensive choice of pizza for a reasonable price. They have an early bird menu before 7pm at £10.95 for starter + main.

Recently visited Croma in Chorlton and wow! What can I say...I was impressed from start to finish with not only the tentativeness and likeability of all the staff (other Italian pizza chains can definitely take a leaf out of Croma's book!!) but also the fantastic choice of the perfectly cooked food and delicious tasting wine. Me and my wife took... More
